To defeat Heroic Shade of Aman, I went a totally different route by using a Mill Brann-Reno rogue. Of course I still included damage spells like Backstab, Eviscerate, and Sinister Strike, but what ultimately killed him was fatigue!

Coldlight Oracle FTW

One of the great things about playing as rogue is that I can attack with my hero to trigger the Flame Wreaths on an empty board. He played the 1st one Turn 2 and the 2nd on Turn 3. Totally wasted on his part. ;)

Turn 9 marked the start of the reign of Reno. He began by healing me up from 14. Then on Turn 10, Brann + Shadowcaster = 2x 1-cost Renos added to my hand. I rationed my Renos as much as I thought necessary. Played my 2nd one when I was down only to 22, because I was paranoid about being hit with 2x Fireballs. (Boss was down to 10 health. I was so close, and didn't want to lose to bad luck!) I used the 3rd when Shade of Aran launched a Fireball, Frostbolt, and Arcane Missiles to bring me down to 10. I followed that up with a Vanish. That gave me a "just in case" Reno #4 to hold onto through the final turn.

Thistle Tea actually worked out perfectly in this match. It drew for me Coldlight Oracle, which resulted in 3x Coldlight Oracles. The Vanish on the 2nd to last turn gave me the "4th" Oracle that I needed to bury the boss for good.

Undercity Huckster pulled his weight in this fight too. His deathrattle gave me Rhonin. In turn, Rhonin's deathrattle gave me 3x Arcane Missles...which in turn provided me with a very beefy Edwin VanCleef! Of course, VC only lasted one turn. :( He ate a Pyroblast for me though. :)

Fighting fire with fire isn't the only way to beat Shade of Aran. If you find tricksy methods exciting, give mill a try. :D

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
